A little advice please.
I buy some cardboard boxes from my supplier 'Box123’
They charge me £240 + VAT for the boxes (£288)
They also charge me £27.95 for carriage, invoice total £315.95
Can I claim the VAT back from the carriage although it is not charged within the invoice? it arrived from a major courier so they are VAT registered.
It also makes a mess of entering the receipt into my purchases on QuickFiles. If I enter them as separate lines on the purchase, I have to list the £27.95 as no VAT or calculate the amount without VAT then add the 20% although I don’t have the couriers VAT registration number.
What should I do in this scenario? I think it’s good that the Box123 does not charge me VAT on top of the courier price which the courier would have quoted Box123 with VAT included.
Thank you inadvance.
